Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I bought the sansa e250r and it had files already on it. i deleted those files and everything else on the sansa but its still saying that i have space used on my sansa. Its not just a couple kilobytes its enough to not allow 100-150 songs to be downloaded into the sansa. How do i get my memory back that im not using?
I had this exact same problem with my e250r. I found something that seems so simple. Follow these steps and you SHOULD free up tons of memory!
First, format the players drive in PlaysForSure mode. This will erase all of the files on that mode. The next step ensures that all of the files in "Rhapsody" mode are erased.
> enter My Computer
> select "folder options" from the "tools" drop down menu
> in "folder options" select the following: show hidden files; deselect: hide extensions for known file types, and hide protected operating system file (Recommended) (you can restore these settings after you fix the problem)
> make sure your player is in "Rhapsody" mode, connect it to your computer
> connect your player and open the "Sansa e250R" file
> in the Sansa e250R folder there will be a transparent "system" file, click it
> check the "music" file - it will probably be full of files with a .rax extension - delete 'em!
Doing this should clear up tons of memory on your player. Hope this works for you, too!

With most MP3 players, some of the memory is used for system files and software. Just delete all the things you done use (i.e. pictures, playlists, Rhapsody Channels) and whatever space you have free is what you have to work with.
If you want more memory, I highly suggest a microSD card
